Matanivusi is a tropical eco resort dream come true! The staff is beyond wonderful and the most helpful and thoughtful group of people. They are constantly making sure your vacation is a perfect as can be! The resort itself is magical. Tucked away in a garden/jungle type atmosphere with the ocean and at your door step and the sound of...

I really have no words to express what this place is like. The rooms are beautiful with a secluded back porch overlooking the ocean. The grandaddy tree is jaw dropping, beautiful yoga center, pool and hot tub. Amazing surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, SUP, yoga, poolside and beachside deck for sunset happy hours. With only 12 rooms, you get to know the...

Wow. I've lived in Fiji 4 years and this is the best resort I have stayed at. I kept thinking "how thoughtful!" The staff are thoughtful, friendly, extremely helpful people. The design is eco-friendly and thoughtful. The meals by Bruce and his staff are amazing with many options for various diets. Everyone eats dinner together which is very nice. The...

I stayed here with a friend for a couple of days and had an amazing experience! The staff was great they always made sure that we were well taken care of. Easy access to some of the best surfing locations, paddle boarding and daily yoga classes make this place a great choice.

Our Stay, my beautiful girlfriend Mercedes and I, was personified by personalised service from all staff in an environment that offers a touch that says every person that enters is special. So many people to mention making the time special, we especially thank Brian & Donna for their spectacular location that melds into the environment inconspicuously, Mark & Ledge for...

When we arrived we were welcome by Brian and lunch was provided after a tour of the Eco Resort. The staff were the friendliest I have encountered in a long time. Nothing was a problem. The next day we headed out to Frigates which is a punchy left hand reef break in the middle of nowhere. It was pumping 4...

This is a hidden gem an hour and 10 min from Suva. We had an epic stay in this chilled eco resort with opportunity to do pretty much whatever you feel like doing. Probably the best surf accommodation on the mainland with a boat pretty much leaving every morning early for frigates. However, no issue for our 14 yr. old...
